India has been a frontrunner when it comes to implementing new-age technology such as AI, machine learning and quantum technologies. In fact, Union Budget 2020 saw an allocation of INR 8,000 crore towards the development of technologies such as Quantum Cryptography and Quantum Communication.
Further building on quantum technology, and with a vision to drive disruptive innovations across multiple sectors with AI and quantum technology, Bengaluru-based Archeron Group is providing cutting-edge solutions for multiple industries.
Analytics India Magazine got in touch with the founder of Archeron Group to understand the tech behind it. Founded in 2015 by Aviruk Chakraborty, Archeron Group was established with a vision to drive disruptive innovations across multiple sectors that can help transform the world for the better.
The company is co-headquartered in Abu Dhabi and San Francisco. It has a state-of-the-art Global Development and Delivery Centre (GDDC) in Bengaluru. It holds strategic importance for the Group and is responsible for creating the entire solution portfolio of the groups which it has been able to take to the Middle East (UAE and KSA), North America, and the European Union.
AI & Quantum Computing Is Central To Archeron
Archeon extensively integrates AI and quantum computing in its flagship products. Chakraborty explained them as below:
1| Automated and Remote Sensing Agri Platform: This is an Agri analysis platform that uses remote sensing-based technologies to map the yield, the productivity of that field not only for the past 20 years but also to predict the next year’s yield and productivity.
Chakraborty stated, “We have developed a vast array of solutions which include agricultural insurance automation, agriculture loan automation, crop classification and identification, soil analysis, fertilizer and pesticide requirement analysis, disease detection and real-time monitoring of the field, to name a few.”
2| Bank/ NBFC automation using AI: The company is building a Quantum AI Bank using quantum technologies and artificial intelligence, which will be completely autonomous in its decision making. According to Chakraborty, the larger parameters of the bank such as risk ratios and macroscopic directives will be set by the board on a quarterly basis which gets translated into algorithmic performance parameters and hence executed for the next quarter.
3| Predictive Diagnostic Platforms: Archeron group has created an integrated national radiology platform using Deep Convolutional Neural Networks, where the radiological plates of all the patients all over the country is analysed and a diagnostic support system is created in which the doctors are given a second opinion on the radiological plates.
4| Quantum Cryptography: The company has designed Quantum Cryptography with a view to strengthen the payments infrastructure in India and make them 100% secure and unhackable. They used three-factor authentication as well as Quantum One Time pad to offer an end to end secure platform.
On being asked how the products are different from others in the market, Chakraborty pointed out that-
- AI bank solutions at the company leverage an integrated end to end model using ML, whereas most players are in the current stage of only developing digital banks with the processes being human decision-driven in the backend.
- Archeron Group uses Quantum One Time Pads and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) frameworks along with their own proprietary mathematical cryptographic framework to create an unhackable communication protocol.
The Tech Behind It
Chakraborty said, “We are language agnostic developers as we have to not only develop solutions but also integrate them with the existing framework for existing clients.” Archeron Group is using C++/ Python for the ML algorithms and prefers to build the ML models from scratch rather than using a pre-trained model.
They also work on the domains of blockchain, satellite imagery analysis, IoT, brain-computer interface, genetic programming for creating synthetic life along with standard machine learning and quantum computing, cryptography and communication frameworks.
Chakraborty said that in the next five years, the focus would be on increasing the adoption of healthcare, banking and agricultural solutions in UAE, India and the USA. The company is also focusing on global implementation of already developed technology and iteratively refining it to make the tech stack better.
